Why Not the 2010 Subaru Forester?

Powertrain performance

The 4 cylinder engine combined with the 4 speed automatic provides a decent city driving experience but on the highway it was found to be lacking in power. With the turbo you get worse mileage, have to use premium fuel and have less interior/cargo space.

Quietness

Road and wind noise seemed a bit loud on the highway but not horrible.

Audio & nav systems

The base stereo system was very tinny sounding. Not impressive.

Discounts & incentives

Subaru Canada seems like they do not provide many incentives on the Forester (to be fair their sales are growing quite fast). I was able to negotiate a very good price but even with that it was possible to get the V6 RAV4 for about the same price.

Cargo capacity

Cargo capacity was good but a little smaller than others.

This review was originally a two-car comparison review. Read the other half here.
